  2. ISOMELO added a post in a topic: Am I the only one who wants to see CP3 win a title this year?   

    I really want to see LeBron bring a ring to Cleveland if I can't get that outcome than I'd like to see Paul win a ring. Dude is one of the best PG's ever and is highly unappreciated and overlooked historically. He's carried teams in New Orleans and he's had some poor luck in Los Angeles with teams being banged up, guys under performing around him, bad coaching, bad match-ups, poor depth, lack of elite wing defense he's caught a lot of flack for his shortcomings which are circumstantial. I think this is one his best opportunities to win it and he's only getting older in this loaded West.

    And you got Greivis Vazquez dancing like he Diddy or Carlton off Fresh Prince after hitting a gametying shot just to lose in OT without making a single FG 

  4. ISOMELO added a post in a topic: Why did the NBA get rid of the playoffs insignia on courts?   

    Yeah, they use to have the big Finals trophy at mid court too. I don't understand why they removed all these things. 
  5. ISOMELO added a post in a topic: Is anyone else glad that Pelicans made the playoffs?   

    I'm glad. I've already seen Oklahoma City in the playoffs for the last 5 seasons, while Westbrook is very entertaining I'm not trying to see him put up godly statlines just to go down in 4 or 5 games. Oklahoma City without KD and Ibaka aren't a better team than New Orleans either. 
     
    It's time to see the young gawd Anthony Davis flourish at the big stage...

    This is my biggest concern for them, I think they can play better defense than Miami did in last years playoffs though.

  9. ISOMELO added a post in a topic: Is Drummond Becoming Howard?   

    Drummond will never be as good as Howard IMO, I don't get why a lot of people think that. Dwight in his prime was a 23/14 guy with historically good anchoring, Dwight led a team to the Finals and dominated the Easten Conference Finals. Do you guys see Drummond leading a team with a relatively weak supporting cast to the Finals? Do you guys see Drummond making nearly 10x All-Star? Do you guys see Drummond winning 3x DPoY? Do you guys see him as a perennial All-NBA team selection? Because I don't. 
    Dwight is probably slightly less athletic but he's a lot more skilled, Drummond is a lot more raw his FG% took a big dip to start the year because he tried to play in the post. For as much flack as Howard catches in the post, Drummond is a lot more raw than even Dwight was at the same age. Dwight actually had many big games where he actually dominated teams from the post...

  12. ISOMELO added a post in a topic: Offensively: Peak Nash Vs Current Curry   

    ​D'Antoni's system is known to improve the production of guards, just look at all the examples I gave. Ray Felton doesn't average 17/9 in any other system, Linsanity doesn't occur in any other system. Phoenix wasn't as conducive to producing offensive numbers? Nash had supporting casts that were just as strong in terms of offensive personnel. Amar'e Stoudemire, Shawn Marion, Leandro Barbosa, Boris Diaw. Diaw and Barbosa were both willing passers, Amar'e is one of the best pick and roll big men of All-Time, Marion's made a career from moving off ball, tons of shooters.
    Steph is definitely the engine of this Golden State team, he is everything in the same way Nash was everything for Phoenix. For as talented as these teams were/are they struggled massively without Nash/Steph. 
    '06-'07 Phoenix Suns without Nash: -13 oRtg 
    '14-'15 Golden State Warriors without Curry: -13 oRtg 
    The '13-'14 Warriors were nearly 26 points worse offensively when Curry hit the bench, really there is no dramatic difference in impact he's the epitome of an engine at least given these on/off numbers, also leading the league in offensive box plus minus. 
    I'm not saying Steph is better, my point is how much did he benefit from D'Antoni's system? How would Steph, Paul or a guy like Westbrook's numbers look if they played in the system. Nash went from 15/9 on 59% TS to 2x MVP and perennial double digit assists guy with near 20 points a game and some of the most efficient seasons ever after the age of 30 once he joined D'Antoni.

    Breh I seen the worst argument against LeBron on thecoli the other day

    1. ISOMELO

      WOAT basketball opinions :scusthov:

    2. Ben

      Person said LeBron played no defense in the 2012 finals :mjlol:

    3. ISOMELO

      Lmao 2012 LeBron was such a monster defensively just because Durant killed doesn't mean he didn't play D. Check the vid I posted in Noah's thread, 20 minutes of excellence. :wow:

      What's Mac coming out with this year?

    2. Frosty

      I'm guessing an album, just signed with Warner so I'd expect late 2015 drop

  3. ISOMELO » Guest

    I just realized Draymond Green was a RFA, I'd offer him the max thoughts?

    1. Guest

      Yeah I'd gladly offer him the max but I assume the Dubs will dump Lee and match any offer .. Even though their owner is cheap, salary cap is going in the future so he can take that Lux tax for 1 season to keep a #1 seed contender

    2. ISOMELO

      Damn, I really want this dude. I'd take him over Leonard as far as RFA's go. Galloway looked nice today, with his defense and shooting I wouldn't be surprised if he could possibly develop into a great triangle PG.

  6. ISOMELO » Bayzus

    Glad you agree with me about the Big O thing breh :myman:

    1. Bayzus

      There's just so much gray area about players prior to the 70s. Ridiculous pace and the game lacked as much depth as it has today. I can't assume Oscar would be as dominant as CP3 in the modern era because of athleticism and legnth in today's NBA since the players today are far more athletic. PGs probably wouldn't be guarding him anyway.

    2. Bayzus

      Seems like on HN people are split between thinking players from the 60s would be just as good today and then others (DJ90 type) think they would be scrubs coming off the bench as 3rd string players.

    3. ISOMELO

      Exactly. Also, Oscar having a post game perhaps being a slightly better scorer doesn't make him a far superior player.

    2. ISOMELO

      Westbrook''s production with or without Durant's been ridiculous thus far, how can you talk about stat inflation when you're arguing for Oscar Robertson? Westbrook is putting up these numbers in only 31 minutes per game that's amazing. You nitpick his 4 turnovers and 28% 3PT shooting the man is averaging 32/7/8 per 36 minutes with nearly 3 steals.

    3. ISOMELO

      Saying OKC is a poor team because Durant was injured isn't a valid excuse not just anybody can put up those numbers through 20 games. That's like knocking Jordan for averaging 37 on a poor team, I'm not saying Westbrook will sustain his performance I doubt it, I'm not saying he's as good as Oscar. The point is there truly isn't a dramatic difference from Curry facing a Westbrook or Paul in today's league.

    4. Wojnarowski

      OKC is a poor team. Any team below .500 is poor in comparison to what they should be. Wade and Bosh's stats dropped because they joined with LeBron. Without LeBron, Wade and Bosh's stats go back up. Same thing with Westbrook and Durant. Westbrook is chucking threes that's why he's shooting 27% from three. Westbrook is also shooting 43% from the field whereas Robertson averaged 48%. Robertson vs Curry? Robertson would out rebound him, have the edge on him on defense because of...

      Should have been a mixtape, it's got some some decent joints Wuzzup is the best song overall yeah it's kinda underwhelming. Not near Ross' best projects.

    Can I ask you a hip hop question

    1. Show previous comments  8 more
    2. ISOMELO

      sure

    3. Frosty

      Serious question no bias or anything, is Mac Miller's career symbolic of this generation? You say shmurdas song is symbolic because it was organic without an industry push, but Mac just recently signed a deal after pushing out record breaking albums as an independent artist, is he too not symbolic in the same vain as Shmurda?

    4. ISOMELO

      Shmurda's song is symbolic because of that and other things I elaborated on such as the death of regionalism in hip hop and current NYC sound. I don't think that's stupid or anything so I don't understand why it's being mocked so much on here.

    1. ISOMELO

      1995 NYC radio show thought you'd be interested. Lots of obscure East Coast 90's joints, one of Jay-Z's first songs pre-Reasonable Doubt, appearances from Lord Finesse/KRS-1/Mic Geronimo among others, rare tracks like the OG Mobb Deep Temperature's Rising. Really takes you back to the 90's, full 4 hour show.

    2. ISOMELO

      Kool G Rap, Mobb Deep, MOP, GZA, Raekwon and Wu-Tang affiliates, Shyheim, Fat Joe, Heltah Skeltah, Redman, LL Cool J, AZ/Nas among many others have tracks. Live mixing and freestyle sessions, KRS kicking knowledge.

      Meh, I don't think we're making the playoffs. I'm not a fan of the Triangle, it worked with Phil because he had All-Time players like Jordan, Kobe, Shaq, Pippen, Rodman and amazing role players. Many other coaches have tried it and failed because of personnel as of right now we don't have the personnel.

    3. ISOMELO

      It sucks that Calderon is out, this is gonna be a bottom defense as well. Just hoping we can get Marc Gasol in the offseason and maybe Rondo during the deadline or something. I'm really looking for Shumpert's progression, also love what Jason Smith has brought. Melo is passing the ball well.

    4. ISOMELO

      When things aren't working in the triangle it's really bad it really leads to a jumpshots fest with low time on the shot clock.

    4. ISOMELO

      Didn't fukk with 6 God, Heat of the Moment is the typical Drizzy lowtempo R&B banger, How Bout Now is cool mainly because of the Jodeci sample and hook.

      Drake thinking of being on the remix for Dej Loaf's Try Me, she's a new female rapper and her single is bubbling.
